10 year high school reunions

10 years later!! My oh my, what 10 years will do!!! I can already look back at high school and think, "if I knew what I knew now...."

I loved high school in some aspects and absolutely couldn't stand it in others. I already get palpitations thinking about what it will be like for Jaycee. I miss the football and basketball games. I miss the "study hall" classes, that really just gave us a free pass to roam the halls our senior year. I miss pep rallies. I miss decorating the school for all of the big events. I miss seeing my best friends everyday. And I really miss that my biggest concern was what my weekend plans were. (my oh my, life was good!)

However, I could not stand the drama. Oh my gosh, high school should just be labeled, "DRAMA!" That's what gives me palpitations about my children going to school!! I mean seriously, I crack up at my list of what was drama back then, that I laugh about now....

10 years ago vs. 10 years later (now):

*worrying about wearing the right kind/brand of clothes vs. I currently shop at Target and if it's over 10 dollars I hesitate!

*worrying I wouldn't be invited to a weekend party vs. Now, I just want to run to bed as soon as possible so I can get the most sleep as I can

*worrying that some other girl was flirting with my boyfriend vs. I'm now married to man I didn't even know existed in high school

*worrying about which one of my friends I should side with when we're all in the midst of an argument vs. I currently can't remember the last time I had friend drama.

I know there's tons more drama, but I get stressed out thinking back to all that stuff!! Whew, that part of me is glad it's over!! hahaha.

So moving on, Josh and I have both had our 10 year high school reunions this summer. They BOTH were interesting to say the least!!! We went to mine first, and while it is great to see some of the people we graduated with, most of them are on Facebook. There isn't anymore of not knowing what people are up to or where they live or if they're married with kids. I think that's kinda put a damper on the whole "reunion" thing!

We had a photo booth at mine and the pictures above were some good moments of my reunion!! It gave us a chance to get out the props and act goofy together all over again!!

Josh's happened to be last night. He had a much larger graduating class, so they definitely had a larger turnout. Luckily, thankfully, to facebook, I did know a few people that he graduated with and we did get to catch up with a few. However, more times than not, I found myself standing around comforting myself with cheesecake and a mixed drink!! HAAHA. (I'm sure Josh did the same at mine!)

I'm curious on if either of us will have a 20 year one. I would put more of a bet on Josh's class having one than mine. However, both of them gave us an excuse, to get dolled up, get out of the house, and socialize with friends!! (Something that doesn't get to happen much anymore with kids), so for that, bring on the reunions!

(as long as they always offer desserts and a bar for the long lost spouses!) :)
